NEW ALBANY, Ind. — Authorities in southern Indiana say the body of an Everett man was found in the Ohio River over the weekend.

Indiana conservation officers say 57-year-old Harry Risinger was reported missing April 7 to Louisville, Ky., police.

Floyd County Coroner Leslie Knable tells the News and Tribune that a barge worker spotted the body Saturday morning in the water off the New Albany shore, just across the river from Louisville.

Authorities say an autopsy found Risinger’s death appeared consistent with drowning, but a final determination is awaiting toxicology results.
